Hello! We are up to our next sketch challenge over at Happy Little Stampers. Wow, it is December.... hopefully this sketch will help you with the last minute cards you need to make.
Our sponsor is
and there will be a $5 gift certificate to her store!
Here is my card -
I received some really cool stencils from Loll and I put them straight to work. You will also see inspiration from Loll over at the HLS blog. She has been working really hard with some new ideas for the forum and we are both really excited about what's coming up. Stay tuned!
I have used Versamark Ink over the stencil and then embossed with black powder. Then I used Distress Inks and sponged my sky. A silver pen was used to create the snow.
I'm not sure if you can tell but I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and then over the top again with black ink. It gives it a really cool shadow effect.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -
Time Out - Embossing
Inkspirational - Christmas optional twist no red or green
Completely Christmas - AG with twist of something beginning with 'S" (Stencil, Santa, Snow, Sponging)
Thanks so much for looking xx
LOVE this card Kylie. Definitely can see you were inspired by the sketch!! Love the sponged blue sky with the silver dots of snow ... beautiful. And your shadow embossed sentiment is fantastic. Love this CAS sketch and will be using it A LOT! :) Loll xxReplyDelete

Spectacular!! The blue is incredible and love it as a background to that wonderful black embossed stamp of santa and his deer. I've never embossed with black yet (been a bit afraid..) but you've totally changed my mind about it and need to give it a go. Always so excited to see you here at TIME OUT!!!ReplyDelete
